Tutoring Approach:

My sessions follow a planned scheme of work suited for the qualification/aim the tutees are seeking, tailored to their needs. My preferred teaching methods include investigation, learning from questions, test practice, practical experimentation, and lecturing/demonstration. I encourage tutees to engage in reading and writing when appropriate. I follow a philosophy where any subject is accessible to anyone, so that I am committed to work with every tutee whether they are new to the subject or experienced.

Music theory lessons will be assisted with the use of keyboard or electric guitar, and music software (Logic and/or GarageBand) to enhance learning.

I have a very patient approach yet challenging my students to achieve better and better. My students would describe me as organised, hard-working, approachable, sensitive to personal needs, and celebrating their every success.
